Foul-Mouthed Ex-Canadian PM Apologizes For Saying She Hoped Hurricane Would Destroy Trump’s Florida Resort
Just days before President Trump took office, Kim Campbell, a former prime minister, wrote on Twitter: “He really IS a motherf**ker.”
So, that’s the kind of person Kim Campbell is.
But wait, she’s even worse than that.
With a massive hurricane heading toward the U.S. — a storm weather experts are now saying might become a Category 5 before it hits — Campbell took to Twitter again to say she hoped it would hit Trump’s resort in Florida, which serves as the Winter White House.
“I’m rooting for a direct hit on Mar a Lago!” she wrote. Others replied to her tweet hoping for the same thing.
Outrage was swift.
Actor Allen Covert, who has starred in and written several movies with Adam Sandler, including “Happy Gilmore” and “Anger Management,” took aim at all the haters.
“My family lives about 10 miles from Mar-a-Lago so all of you people cheering the fact that Dorian might wipe it out can kindly go f[***] yourselves. You have sunk so low in your hatred that you have become worse than what you hate,” the actor wrote on Twitter.
Others expressed disgust at Campbell’s tweet.
“One thing is evident from the comments. Anti-Trumpers are NOT the kind, loving, wonderful people they pretend to be,” wrote one person on Twitter.
Campbell stayed on the attack, saying critics “don’t get snark — but Trump’s indifference to suffering is intolerable!”
“We’d also help if he tackled climate change which is making hurricanes more destructive! Instead, he will remove limits on methane! Get a grip!” she added.
Finally, Campbell deleted the tweet and eventually apologized — albeit halfheartedly.
“I have deleted my tweet about the hurricane & Mar a Lago and sincerely apologize to all it offended. It was intended as sarcasm — not a serious wish of harm,” Campbell tweeted. “Throwaway lines get a life of their own on Twitter. I shd [sic] know better. Mea culpa.”

Yes, see, she was JUST KIDDING! HA HA HA!
That makes it all OK, right? Calling for the destruction of a massive seaside resort — and, by extension, all the homes around it — is just fine if you later say you were just kidding.
